Translating CHIRP

If you want to help translate CHIRP into another language, please follow these steps:

  1. Create a new issue for the language and include the language code. Here is a helpful list.
  2. Someone will create an empty template .po file and attach it to your issue
  3. Translate the file. Generally, poedit is the best way to do this. Be sure to fill out the translator meta-details.
  4. Attach the resulting translated .po file to the ticket
  5. A developer will check it over and then submit it for inclusion
